This e-learning course, Epilepsy Awareness, is broken down into four easy to follow units – an introduction and three study units. It aims to raise awareness of epilepsy – what it is, the symptoms, the different types of seizure and the impact it can have on people’s everyday lives.

By providing learners with a better understanding of the condition, it will enable them to offer more effective support to the people in their care.

The course reinforces the importance of helping people to remain as independent as possible and to have choice and control over the way they live their lives.
